Question about a patron saint
« on: August 27, 2007, 11:03:16 PM »
I have a question I thought I would throw out here for y'all.

My daughters name is Angela. Would her patron saint be a particular angel? Is there a saint Angela or Angelica (Angelika)? I haven't been able to find one online. My daughter is getting to the age where she wants an icon of her patron saint. I am fixing to construct an icon corner in her room (much like the ones in the childrens Orthodox books). I would appreciate any insights from you guys.

Maybe St. Angelina of Serbia?

My niece is also named Angela. I must ask my sister, who obtains icons like crazy, what she does.
Until then, maybe St. Angelina of Serbia?

OB, I forgot her middle name, but you might could find a patron saint that matched her middle name easier? Just a thought.

I have looked for st. Angelina of serbia icons but have not been able to find one. Does anyone have a link to where it might be located?
